This manual is designed for students at the college entry level and assumes that the student has no previous college biology or chemistry. The lab manual’s terminology and classification conform to that of Starr/Taggart/ Evers/Starr’s Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life, Starr/Evers/Starr’s Biology: Concepts and Applications, and Starr/Evers/Starr’s Biology Today and Tomorrow, although you’ll find that the exercises support virtually any biology text used in an introductory course.

As always, we strive to provide students with exciting, relevant activities, observations, and experiments that allow them to explore some of the rapidly developing areas of biological knowledge and how those relate to their daily lives.

For example, Exercise 7 (Diffusion, Osmosis, and the Functional Significance of Biological Membranes) includes a new activity relating membrane function to the consequences and treatment of cholera. Similarly, Exercise 10 (Respiration: Energy Conversion) includes an activity in which cellular respiration rates are measured as levels of students’ physical performance change. Also new in Exercise 10 is an experiment investigating the potential for different plant carbohydrate sources to be used in the production of ethanol.

The Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry , third edition, by Karen C. Timberlake contains 35  experiments related to the content of general, organic, and biological chemistry courses, as well as basic/preparatory chemistry courses. The labs included give students an opportunity to go beyond the lectures and words in the textbook to experience the scientific process from which conclusions and theories are drawn.
